We are pleased to announce the recent graduation of Community Health Workers in our health facility in Kabul. 10 women were trained by AfD from 6 – 20 May in providing health eduction and first aid to the communities.
Upon graduation, they were provided with kits which they will distribute among community members when necessary. They will also be referring women and children to the nearest health facilities, in case of urgencies.
These new Community Health Workers will also be coming to the health facilities and report about their activities every month. This creates ties and links with community members, which allows for a better understanding of their problems. In return, they will also be informing the community about the possibilities of health services at our health facility.
